Tractor-trailer hits Peace Street bridge in Raleigh
Posted May 15, 2014
Raleigh, N.C. — A 53-foot Penske rental truck became the latest to get stuck under the Peace Street bridge in downtown Raleigh Thursday morning.
The eastbound tractor-trailer hit the railroad overpass during the morning commute on Peace Street near Glenwood Avenue. The trailer crumpled and broke in half when it hit the overpass.
No injuries were reported, but Raleigh police said the truck could be stuck for much of the morning.
Flashing lights and signs warn drivers about the low overpass, but several trucks have hit the bridge in the past several months. The bridge clearance is 12 feet 4 inches.
